Antiguas Reservas Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas from Maipo is a rich garnet in hue. The nose offers notes of blackcurrant and mint underlined by subtle cherry aromas and hints of spice. In the mouth it’s delicate and energetic with refined tannins and characterful grip while the rich flavors are shored up by the freshness. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2022)

Finis Terrae Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2015 Blend Fines Terrae is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 12% Syrah from Maipo, aged in new French oak barrels. Dark garnet red in hue. The attractively complex nose presents notes of ripe blackcurrant, mint, pepper, thyme, bay leaf, cigar box and dried flowers. Voluminous with a refined texture and dry, reactive tannins. The flavors are fruity and well-defined with the thyme that becomes especially clear at the back of the mouth. A lingering, complex red. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2022)

La Gitana Gold Rioja Tempranillo 2015

An excellent Rioja Reserva, found at Costco, and a steal for the price!  Begins with copious aromas of dried cherries & fig, alongside subtle tobacco & woodsmoke notes. Continues with a smooth and approachable palate with light-med tannins and flavors of black cherry & roasted tomato with notes cocoa on the finish.  Paired quite nicely with homemade roasted artichoke pizza.

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Baronesa P. Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2019 Baronesa P. is a combination of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Carménère, 5% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Franc from the Maipo Valley, aged for 15 months in 60% new barrels. Garnet red in color. The complex nose is dominated by the oak, displaying notes of cedar and pencil box, dark fruit aromas and a whiff of thyme. On the palate, the flavors are intense with taut but polished tannins. Broad and long-lasting with an oaky backdrop, this grows more profound when decanted. One to keep.

Clos Apalta

Le Petit Clos Valle de Apalta Red Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2018 Le Petit Clos is a blend of 53% Carménère, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot from Apalta, Colchagua. Dark garnet in hue. The complex nose offers plum jam, hints of smoke, herbs and pepper against a backdrop of cigar box and graphite. A ripe, broad, full-bodied red with precise acidity and a juicy, grippy flow (quite accomplished for the style), it ends with an intense, ripe finish. A red to hold on to.

Clos Apalta

Valle de Apalta Red Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2018 Clos Apalta is 64% Carménère, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot from Apalta, Colchagua, aged for 24 months in 85% new barrels. The ripe, complex, clear nose offers prune, blueberries and blackberries along with pepper, tobacco, rosemary, cigar box and a whiff of smoke. Creamy and broad in the mouth with good volume, a firm flow and contained structure. The tannins set the tone while the mellow freshness underlines the sugary profile. A genuine Michel Rolland wine made during a year of subtle flavors. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2022)

Wellington 20 Years VOS Palo Cortado Sanlúcar de Barrameda Palomino Fino

Da bomb, for sherry lovers: Palo Cortado versión. A shape shifter on the palate & ringing on the higher registers, this Hidalgo checks all the boxes for me, which includes a lightness & freshness heaven made for most food. Burnt pine cone & toffee bits, a subtle mushroom thing (oyster?), & a rather trim beef bouillon broth lurking on the back end. That may all be bs but it’s a wine that inspires….. — 5 months ago
